Hey everyone,

I just received, installed and programmed mine: it went absolutely all well!
I would be glad to view your unimaps files, would you mind sharing ?

Here is my current map:

hex:
https://github.com/sebtoun/tmk_keyboard/blob/seb/keyboard/fc660c/binary/fc660c_seb.hex

Basically it's emu layout with Shift Parenthesis and SpaceFn (with TAPPING_TERM reduced to 200ms).

Hi,
This is my current setup for FC660C which is based on 'emu' keymap and added kind of SpaceFN layer for mouse keys. It is equivalent to my keymap on my daily driver HHKB, I hold 'slash' key to change layers when I need hjkl-arrow keys :)

You can try it here if someone is interested :D

Hi, I am trying to get a numpad layer that can send alt codes to work. I tried P0-P9 but when I press the keys they don't do anything. Please help.

I'm not sure but numlock state may be related?

Hasu does sales and shipping like he does software and hardware. Enough said.

P.S. It's the little things: The caps lock light works now even if you switch the control and caps lock keys. Didn't work with the stock controller.

...change the actuation point of the switches...

...EDIT:
I don't still feel calm offering this function to users and default firmware won't support this for a while at least...

Is changing the actuation point a feature now using the replacement controller on any of the Topre keyboards?

I'd love to be able to try tweaking the actuation point to be very early, but the only option available now is the Realforce RGB and I'd much prefer something smaller than full size.

So I can do it if I learn how to build from source, interesting. It will require overcoming fear of screwing it up!

Is there an equivalent controller for the Realforce TKL? It's a little larger than the 660c, but 55g weight and the Silent versions are desirable features not available with Leopold as far as I can see.

Realforce usually has its controller integrated with key switches in one big pcb and you cannot replace only controller easily unfortunately.

Hey Hasu, got your controller a while ago and it turned my FC660C back into my daily drive over the Whitefox, love it!

I have one question though. Just today, I disconnected my keyboard to use the USB for a controller, and then switched back to the keyboard. The insert LED lit up and the keyboard would not input. A restart solved this issue, but if I replug the keyboard, it does the same thing until I restart. I do not have a laptop to test this with, but is this a limitation of the controller or a unique case?

Hi,
You mean repluging always fails until rebooting compter? It should not happen, weird.

waht is os/hardware of your computer?

Hello! I can say it is perfect, I plug it in and start working.
But it does not let me enter the BIOS, only once I can access, in all other attempts the screen freezes.

how can i fix it?
THX!!

Turn off NKRO by one of methods below.
1) press both shifts and n before using BIOS
2) build firmware with disabling NKRO in Makefile and flash it.

EDIT: NKRO keyboard tends to work with some BIOS/EFI while not with others. 6KRO is likely to always work with most BIOS/EFI.
